Crest spinning disk by NIKON: 2016. 24.10 to 2016.03.11

The Crest spinning disk by Nikon can transform your favourite wide field system into a fast confocal. Spinning disk confocals are fantastic in that they tremendously improve the signal to noise ratio in your image compared to wide field systems and there is no need to compromise on the speed. We have one at the LCI facility and we love it! :) The Crest workshop will be held at our facility 2016.10.24 to 2016.11.03 so there is plenty of time for you to give it a try. Here are a few things you can do:
      - Come to the seminar on the 24.10 at 13:00. The seminar will be held in the red seminar room. Look at our website how to find us. Once in the Novum building take the F lift to the 6th floor. The glass door to Bionut will be open 5 min before the seminar. For those of you who cannot come physically, we will broadcast the seminar live and you can join without registration by clicking on the link that will be upload on our website shortly before the seminar.
     -   If you would like to try the Crest spinning disk with your own sample, please contact Marie Andersson (marie.andersson@bergmanlabora.se) directly.

Primo micropatterning device by Alveole: 2016.11.08 at 9:30

The Primo micropatterning device by Alveole. Cool addition to a wide field system. It will allow you to print your favourite protein on a Petri dish or a multi well plate. You can design the pattern you want (down to 1 um resolution!), print up to 3 proteins either in distinct or overlapping patterns, you can even print on the walls of the wells and all you need is a jpeg image of your pattern! Then you seed your favourite cells and study how they interact with the printed protein. The system is going to be at our facility for 2 months so you will have time to actually run real experiments. Here is what you can do:

       - Have a look at this video, this one or this webinar
